19th of April 2010, Argentina, FW World Championships

Formula Windsurfing 2010 Worlds summary

I had really great time in Argentina! In conclusion…organization was great, views were just splendid, conditions were perfect and obviously I ‘m very happy about my third World Champ title in row. After injury of wrist I was confused how it will be in this competition. I was even hesitating with my coach if I should go or not, now I’m sure that was a good choice to go there. I had a great sailing on my equipment, Starboard 161, and MauiSails TR6 10.0meter. I like this set a lot. The board works excellent like always, and now with my new Zfin 70cm I found better set up for strong wind, that I was missing. New TR6 10.0m is really smooth in riding and has big range of outhaul adjustment, it can be very deep on the boom, what I like a lot. When I’ll come back home to Poland, there wait for me all new stuff. I’m very happy to try it, cause I heard the new 160


Starboard is great. And for this year I think to change from 161 to smaller 160, so I’m excited a lot of that tests. The only one weak thing this year in Argentina was a girls fleet that was little. We missed for example Alison, Sarah, Alice. It’s a pity, I hope next year will be much better. However I had really interesting racing with Morane Demont. This young and charismatic girl is talented and I think she can be next to gain World Champ title in nearest future (just keep on going Morane!).

My trip back home was as exciting as going to Mendoza, but less stress more funnyJ I was coming back through Santiago Chile, I had one night to stay there, waiting for plane to Madrid. Luckily I met such a great people that helped me to spend this night more interesting than sitting on the airport. First Jorge and Rosana picked me up from the airport, than I had a dinner with their whole family. After, Antonia and two Peruwian girls that also took part in competition in Mendoza took me for great party and let me crush with them for the night. Thanks a lot to all of you guys.

I want to thank all the people that helped me in this trip, my sponsors for great support, Starboard, MauiSails, Polish Yachting Association, Sieplywa.pl, Energysports and Ergo Hestia. After coming back home I had really rush days. Now I’m already in France for RSX training camp. Like always I just can’t wait next year Worlds and nearest Formula event.
